Thanks to you—our incredible community of Research Science Institute (RSI) and USA Biology Olympiad (USABO) alumni donors—we surpassed both the financial and donor participation goals in the 2017-2018 Alumni Campaign! 

"RSI was life changing. It allowed me to push myself at a really young age to do some really interesting academic work that I wouldn’t have had access to living in rural Indiana. That was huge for me in terms of getting me ready for college and my career."

"I enjoy the interaction with professionals and try to bring some of their information into my classroom to help my students make real world connections."

- Peggy Whitlock, science teacher at Patrick Henry High School in Ashland, VA

The USABO has served as a vehicle to explore the breadth and depth of the biological sciences...from doing microbiological labs to attending lectures by world-class scientists describing their groundbreaking research. I have made life-long friends who share similar passions.
